Some thoughts on the Petraeus scandal

No doubt everyone has heard about this debacle and now other men are involved too. What I found ‘funny’ was thinking about all those religious zealots who go about campaigning against same-sex marriage in the name of “family values”, as if to suggest that heterosexual couples are the only ones who can exhibit these values. Now to be ‘fair’, heterosexual men/women are far more common amongst such positions, so such things are more likely to happen amongst them, statistically speaking. It’s not that I’m saying homosexuals are incapable of such immoral acts, just that it’s pointless to go about seeking government intervention in the lives of others because you claim to represent the sexual orientation of your gender and claim to know what’s best for society.
